We're taking an old favorite, the Drunkard's Path, in a totally new direction. Using strips of fabric, sewn into strata, we'll be fussy cutting the fabric to create the one of a kind Drunkard's Path blocks. From there, we'll use the quilt designs in the pattern as inspiration for our quilts. This is a great stash buster or do what I did and take a focus fabric and build around it.

Follow the Sun

This quilt is created by sewing the edges of 10" squares together and cutting them apart. You end up with 8 pairs of triangles! Amazing. Everything is put together as an oversized square and sized correctly afterwards. This can be a crib to a King. Cut your own 10" squares or use 10" pre-cuts (layer cakes). We have some in the shop in batiks. Lots of variety is the key to this quilt.
